Q: Sage, you said it was a dream, has that dream set in, is it a reality that you're the 1st Gold medalist on the 2014 Winter Olympics?
A: Yeah it's still a dream, it didn't hit me until I was at the top of the podium at the medal ceremony next my best friends in snowboarding, they looked to me and said, 'My knees are shaking,' and I said, 'Me too, this is insane' ….that really hit and it's been a whirlwind of craziness all day.
Q: Can you compare it to anything that comes close?
A: It all feels surreal. Some people work their whole lives for this, and I kind of just showed up and got it. So I think I won the best of both worlds. Just went out there and snowboarded, love snowboarding. It's what I do and I have doing it, so to bring home Gold is pretty cool.
Q: You're only 20 years old, where do you go from here?
A: I peaked so I should just quit and drop out. 1 or 2 more contests this year, but I want to do a film trip and trying filming a video part.
